A COLLECTIVE SOUL & FUNK BAND
Soulmaniacs is a Zurich based band created in 1998. Through out the years, the band has become a collective featuring numerous musicians from the Swiss scene.
FROM THE STREETS TO THE FANCIEST HOTELS
Soulmaniacs started as a street band, still play as such from time to time, but also got to play in some of Switzerland's finest places. No other band in Switzerland can satisfy such a wide range of audience, from alternative to classy as well corporate, providing half acoustic (streetlike) as well as fully amplified performances.
The Soulmaniacs have built a huge repertoire throughout the years, backing up many different vocalists and made it a point to play their own arrangements of the big soul / funks / RnB songbook.
The Soulmaniacs offer a wide range of musical combinations, from trio to a 10-piece band, from soft, but groovy instrumental background music to a funky live performance. Here a list of the musicians currently playing with the Soulmaniacs.Listen to our music
